	ah.. quite illuminating. although I was hoping for something within
the PLIST file so I wouldn't have to litter the tree with PLIST.aix files.
(like an @if ${OPSYS} == AIX, @else, @endif sequence).
	I think I either need to have some kind of special purpose hack
to turn *.so in PLIST files into *.a, or figure out why things only
compile into .a's on AIX and change it.  (even libc is libc.a)
